Rit Dye on Wood... It works nice.. *PIC*

Tom Mullane, Hagerstown, MD
>Rit clothing dye can be used for wood with very good results... It can be disolved in either water or denatured alcohol... obviously the water will raise the grain... We have been using Rit in the scrolling community for some time
Here are two Christmas Ornaments dyed with red rit dye...
The larger one is Maple and the smaller is aromatic cedar.. these were a test to see how the dye would take... the dye was disolved in denatured alcohol and did not raise the grain... Normally the part that is black would be done in gold paint to make it look like the brass part of a Christmas Tree light..
